Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"I for one can do without a car, but I would not like living through a Danish winter without central heating."

But why should others subsidize your choice to live in a place where it's cold?

Furthermore, if I want to have an old car in my garage, which I only drive a few dozen miles a year, why should I have to pay a tax based on its lousy fuel economy?

It seems to me that the taxation system should try to account for externalities like pollution and try to stay away from penalties based purely on subjective bias.
